Andrius Arutiunian is an Armenian-Lithuanian composer based in The Hague whose interest in musical peripheries strongly informs his electro-acoustic modus operandi. His works often look at the ways different sonic traditions intermingle throughout varying times and locales. A generous artistic vocation indeed, one that has compelled Arutiunian to dig deep into music’s lesser-known chapters. For Rewire he presents Seven Common Ways of Disappearing, a work for retuned piano, electronics, and performers. After a year of researching modes of sonic dissent and dissonance as a historiographic and temporal phenomenon, Arutiunian presents a new piece that deals with the complex relationship of tuning, dissonance, and time.
